or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state. it is a teachable moment. it is one where once you land in new york, you see the city is a little empty and people are fairly desperate and the desperation is just going to start. our hearts and prayers are from people that live in harm's way and people that live through katrina know what it is. the political ramifications could show up on tuesday. >> is this a moment when as much as we are talking about the politics in short-tem electoral politics, is this a moment where we can get through a broader political conversation? >> it is not just that mitt romney would point fema back to the state but the very notion of inequality, of that 47%, that that is what is revealed in this moment. >> i think that's right. the feeling you have when you see what you just showed, which is someone through no fault of their own being dealt the worst tragedy that c

belcher. pollster for obama 2012. barbara arn wine, the lawyers committee for civil rights on the law. and katon dawson, former chair of the south carolina gop. >> thank you for joining me. >> thank you. cornell, i want to start with a fairly recent study that was taking a look at sort of what's happened between 2008 and 2012 in terms of attitudes towards african-americans. it was roeported that racial bis has risen a bit over the course of the four years where americans are asked expressly about black attitudes. we have 51% of americans expressing anti-black attitudement whereas in 2008, there were only 48%. particularly looking at implicit measures, the things we're not aware of. we see 56% of americans with the anti-black attitudes and only 49% in 2008. what does that tell you in. >> actually, i look at that number and think the glass is half full. >> yeah. absolutely. >> but it also talks and hurdles any sort of minority, if you're running for office, you enter the conversation with stereotypical baggage or baggage that comes along with you. same thing with women running for offic

. because there are so many wealthy donors and corporations on the right, this election cycle to defeat president obama, they are pouring money into these groups that don't have disclose -- >> that $74 million spent in opposition to the president with only $5.1 million spent in opposition to governor romney, it isn't because of a law issue, it's because of an actual resource. >> we saw the same disparate in 2004 when president bush and there was a very strong opposition to president bush. >> we say if you want to know, follow the money. you a strategy for following the money. >> we brought all the money. >> i'm looking at the table now which looks like apparently we're going to go down to florida to a strip club afterward. that's not what's going on here. explain what's going on with this money on the table. >> you know, corporations and the wealthiest .01% of the country are making their money talk by giving gobs of its to politicians expecting favors in return. the problem is that that overshadows the voice of regular people and the stamp stampede campaign is about regular peop

and most important group for president obama, black women voted for him. >> right, who are the single largest group in terms of turnout in 2008. victoria, i was wondering a little bit about this idea of what does it take to create a multi-racial cross class, close enter generational women's coalition? on the one hand, we're not all the same. having ovaries or at one point having ovaries, not even get spoog the biology of it all. but that alone doesn't give you shared political interests, but it is sometimes surprising to see how different those opinions are depending on what sort of woman we're talking about. >> absolutely. speaking in terms of the latino electorate, we know that a lot of latinos are catholics. among k among catholicism is where we see a break against abortion. this is where we need to think about women's issues at large. we do care about reproductive rights. that is one base of coordination but also the economy because women of color were the hardest hit during this recession. and we need to reach out to color in terms of latinos in particular, also immigratio

obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final days. this is serious politics. so what's happening here particularly among my strategists. is it about targeting 106 counties, is it about early, early, swing voters, what is the winning strategy? >> what's going on is we have a gruff's race for ohio going on and barack obama and mitt romney are the candidates. we're dead in in terms of focusing in on specific counties because everyone's focused on ohio and i think to some degree candidates and people down at the county level in ohio may have better feel than some looking at polls and super pacs at the national

obama last time and get them to come out and vote for us this time. >> all right. so maybe mitt romney is also taking a two prong way, he's for early voting, too, or maybe he has a bit of romnesia about what his closing strategy is supposed to be. whatever the case, the two strategies that they've chosen tells us this. president obama has eight days to win this election. mitt romney has nine. because he's betting on a big turn out on election day. listen, romney may be on to something given that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final days. this is
